Yesterday I released a new iPhone app into the App Store. It’s a local guide to Los Altos, California, the town where I live, and a bit more: with a few simple discussion and sharing features, Townie is an app for community.
This morning I was walking downtown to my favorite local wifi work spot. As I rounded the corner from my side street to the main road downtown, I was surprised to find a folded bundle of cash lying on the sidewalk with the number “50” peeking from the corner of one of the bills. “Someone’s going to miss that,” I thought as I picked up the folded bills and counted three twenties, a fifty, and a one dollar bill.
